By imposing the Petroleum Development Levy through an ordinance, the President has slapped the judiciary smack in the face. The government has proved that it is hell bent upon extorting Rs. 122 billion from the public come what may. It is time the CJ considered resigning from his job as he has been rendered useless and unable to perform his lawful duties as laid down in the constitution. Thereafter, he should wait for the specified period of time he is supposed to wait before entering into active politics. The poor masses of this unfortunate country are waiting for a man like him. -DR MUSHTAQ ZULQARNAIN, Faisalabad, July 2.
